Welcome to Mexpress Transportation, Inc.
If you haven’t already, you will find our site contains information about our company, the points we serve across North America and how we can provide solutions to more than just transportation problems. Our primary service, however, is being the fastest way to move freight across the border.
One way we’ve streamlined the shipping process is knowing what forms you will need and having them prepared in advance. New customers submitting an application will be provided with blanks of all the necessary paperwork for international shipping. You can then copy these forms and
fill them out as needed. Mexpress will be happy to provide assistance if you are unfamiliar with these forms.
Once we’ve gotten the correct paperwork, you can schedule your pickup by phone or online. When your shipment is en route, you will be able to use Mextrak™ to track its progress.
